Punish Person Who Shot Turtle and Rabbit With Bow and Arrow

Target: Essex County, Massachusetts District Attorney Jonathan W. Blodgett

Goal: Prosecute and punish person responsible for shooting animals with bow and arrow.

A turtle and rabbit were found running around with arrows in them after being viciously shot. The person committing these hateful acts needs to be found, arrested, and immediately prosecuted to better ensure that more animals will not be harmed.

Thankfully, the turtle was taken to the Turtle Rescue League rehabilitation facility. Sadly, police officers also found a rabbit wounded with an arrow a few days later. Unfortunately, authorities were not able to catch the rabbit in order to help. An animal that is shot with an arrow can go into systematic shock and quickly die. This rabbit is still running around in pain.

If the person responsible for committing these inexcusable crimes is not caught, many more animals could soon be hurt or killed. Demand that the person behind this cruelty is swiftly prosecuted, so other animals will be less likely to experience lasting injuries or painful deaths.


Dear District Attorney Blodgett,

A rabbit and turtle were found with arrows going through them within a few days of each other. Whoever is committing these unthinkable crimes needs to be quickly brought to justice so that other animals will be less likely to suffer the same fate.

While it is good news that animal control officers were able to capture and relocate the turtle to a nearby rescue facility, the rabbit is still running around pierced with an arrow and in pain. Oftentimes animals that are shot with arrows go into systematic shock, and they likely suffer intensely before passing away.

Animals in the area are in danger of being hurt or killed if this person is not soon put behind bars. We therefore demand that you seek the strictest legal sentence for this offender so more animals will not also have to needlessly suffer.

  1. Dear District Attorney Blodgett,
    Surely the devil is on the loose lately – please get rid of him as soon as possible!, taking into consideration that Animal cruelty is now officially banned across the United States!
    Thank you!

  2. Linda Hilty-Tuttle says:

    I think the animal cruelty law referred to does NOT cover ALL cases of animal abuse. ISummary: H.R.2293 — 114th Congress (2015-2016)All Information (Except Text)
    Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act

    Amends the federal criminal code to prohibit intentionally engaging in ANIMAL CRUSHING in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce or within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States. (Current law prohibits knowingly creating or distributing an animal crush video.) Adds exceptions for conduct that is for predator or pest control, medical or scientific research, or necessary to protect the life or property of a person from a serious threat caused by an animal.

  3. Linda Hilty-Tuttle says:

    I wish the Animal Cruelty Law covered ALL animal abuse, but I’m afraid it does not. We need a much broader law to cover the animal abuse we read about here on Animal Petitions and elsewhere! Animals NEED much greater protection than what H.R. 2293 provides, unfortunately!

  4. Debra Goldstein Lustig says:

    What a lowlife. Prosecute these scumbags to the full extent of the law

  5. Patrick Butler says:

    This perp is too low for a snake to bite!

  6. Linda Cummings says:

    Why doesn’t this idiot moron get a productive job or a real hobby that actually helps the planet. How do people get this stupid?

  7. Charge him to the fullest! Animal abuse/ murder is never ok!! Life in prison for animal murder! Be a voice for those without!! Life in prison no question.

  8. Let’s find this loser and just shoot him/her full of arrows and leave the asshole to die on the spot – you aren’t deserving of the air you breathe. Aniaml abusers should be just done away with – the end of their life for the ones they have taken.

  9. Just what we need, another dangerous sociopath on the loose. Soon a child will come in range of his bow and arrow. This idiot needs to be arrested immediately.

  11. Jaime Perez says:

    This dirty, filthy piece of garbage needs to be found and punished severely. There is no excuse for this heinous treatment of innocent animals. Whoever did this deserves the death penalty!!

  12. Instigation of the death penalty is an essential requirement for all animal abusers internationally.

  13. Lisa Bergeron says:

    Agree with everyone here.Thank you for all you do for animals!God bless you and the animals.

  14. Death penalty for bastard abuser/killer, coward! Find this SOB!

    Justice for animals!
